Journal > Job Opening: Social Media Manager

About The Role

We’re looking for a Social Media Manager to join our team who will manage all of FvF’s social media channels and work closely with our social media network, community and media partners.

Social media management is more than just putting pretty pictures online so our ideal candidate is a self-starter who has a love for both writing and social media. We spend a great deal of time creating stories and social media is how we spread those stories to our readers. It’ll be your job to write compelling copy that converts likes and views into clicks and reads! You need to have an ear and eye for what’s happening on social channels and have the ability to create composed, interesting posts for our social media channels: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.

You also need to provide insights by staring the chaos in the face, taking metrics and analytics and turning them into tactics and strategy. Finally, we can always do better! So we need you to take our strategy to the next level and explore new methods to deliver content to our readers in new and exciting ways.

In general, you should be super organized, efficient and an excellent communicator. You should love words and writing, and be comfortable creating a variety of short copy.
